HEAVEN: Summer Dragon Boat Festival!
HEAVEN, the quarterly gay circuit event, returns to Shanghai, this weekend for the Dragon Boat Festival. Also known as Duanwu Festival, the day has in recent years been celebrated by China’s LGBT community as their very own gay Valentine’s Day following theses by academics that it was Qu Yuan’s love for the king that led him to immerse himself into the river rather than his supposed love for the nation.
The action returns to CLUB ICON, Shanghai’s reigning gay dance club, for the opening and closing night, and the LUWAN STADIUM for the main party. That’s three mega parties happening over three nights from Friday to Sunday!
As this party happens just once every three months, organisers are pulling out all the stops to deliver a party you won’t forget. Three world-famous DJ-producers will be headlining the event: DJ Nacho Chapado from Spain, DJ GSP from Greece and DJ Alex Acosta from Mexico! They’ll be supported by DJs Odin and Herric from Taipei and Shanghai’s very own DJ Javy.
Expect circuit house, tribal, techno and dance music – and 3,000 hotties from around China and the region grinding on the mosh pit.
When? June 19-21, 9pm till late!
Opening and closing event: ICON inside Shanghai Stadium, Gate7 on Lingling Road near Xietu Road // 上海体育场7号门, 零陵路 近斜土路
Main event: Shanghai Luwan Stadium, 128 Zhaojiabang Road near South Shaanxi Road // 肇嘉浜路128号 近陕西南路
How much? At the door: 150 RMB (opening and closing party) – 250 RMB (main event)
